Our meeting with Hillary Clinton on Short Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP)

I participated to a meeting today with State Secretary Hillary Clinton, Swedens Crown Princess HRH Victoria, Environmental Minister Lena EK and Foreign Minister Carl Bildt. The discussion was about short lived climate pollutants (SLCP) such as methane, black carbon, HFC etc. These materials have a major contribution in climate change and global warming. You may see a recent program on Black Carbon on SVT (Vetenskapens värld).

This meeting will hopefully contribute into an acceptable agenda in Rio meeting this month on Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). Our model in Waste Recovery on how to connect local universities, political instruments, municipalites, private companies and NGOs in different countries was on special interest.
